OWL CLASS

 

Welcome to Owl Class!

 

 

 

 

 Owl Class has 20 fabulous children in it this year. Mrs Stocker, Mrs Bradford and Mrs King are all extremely happy to work in such a wonderful Yr2 class.

 

This week we have been learning more about chocolate. In science we have begun to look at materials by sorting objects. Some pictures are attached. I was most impressed with the different ideas the children came up with. We then designed packaging for an imaginary chocolate product. The children have all brought home these designs so that they can collect the materials they need to make their design. We will be starting this junk modelling on Wednesday afternoon, so please have the materials in school on that day. it will take a few lessons to build, so watch out for the final products in a few weeks time. 

Forest school began on Monday with orientation in the school grounds. The children had an amazing time and are ready for the next steps away from school. In Maths we have continued with money, making amounts in different ways and playing shops with classroom equipment- these two activities involve adding and subtraction of money. Finally the Read, Write Inc groups are all up and running and the children have adapted brilliantly to the routine.

 

Welcome back!

 

Although we had a wonderful time over Christmas it's lovely to be back at school this week. I have really enjoyed getting to know the children and hearing so many exciting stories and I am really looking forward to finding out even more about them over the coming weeks. This term we will begin the "What's Cooking?" topic, focusing on Chocolate. On Tuesday we had a special workshop for each class, making, using and learning about chocolate. Please see the photos from this week to see how wonderful our day was later in the week!

 

 

 

More details on our upcoming week to come...

  

 

 

 

Week beginning Monday 13th January 2020 

  

English - We will begin looking at Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. We will be using Talk for Writing to plan and edit the story. We will also focus on sentence structure and punctuation.          

 

Maths - We will begin the term by looking at the 4 calculations before moving on to fractions. The children will have a chance to use and apply their knowledge of x / + - and problem solve.  

 

Topic - This term will begin with looking at how chocolate is made, where it originates and how Fair Trade is relevant. We will be looking at the world map and globes and locating the UK and other countries. We will also be designing our own chocolate products and have asked the children to please save some of their chocolate boxes or packages from Christmas to use in January. Please bring these in to class as soon as possible.

 

Forest School - All year 2 will be doing Forest School this half term on a Monday afternoon. Please ensure your child has waterproofs, wellies and a warm change of clothing in school each week. The class will be having a wonderful time learning outdoors, rain or shine!

Maths Parents Workshop Presentation

HOMEWORK

Weekly/ Daily homework

  • Reading, daily reading really has a huge impact.  Reading a few pages and then discussing these is the most important strategy to ensure your child has understood what they have read.

 

  • Spellings, The children will be given a set of weekly spellings, this term they will be focussing on the sight words your children need to know.  Each week when I test the children we also cover a random selection of spellings from the previous weeks covered.  This informs me of whether the children are retaining their spellings and whether they should be able to apply this skill when they write. (Strategies, look, cover, write, check.  Sounding out can be useful but only as a last resort.  Please encourage your child to look carefully at the words once they have written it and think to themselves does that look right?

 

  • Mathletics, the website is always available for children to practise their skills.  Each week I will state the topic of maths that we will be focussing on for your child to log on and practise.
